Crafts With Cutters Challenge #120

Roses are red . . . violets are blue . . . its almost Valentine's Day  . . . here's an idea for you!  How 'bout that!  I'm a poet and didn't know it!  LOL!  All kidding aside, today's "Crafts With Cutters" challenge at is to create a project with a heart.  

Here is what I made:

And here's the recipe:

  • The hot pink card base measures 6" x 6" and is from a Recollections 12" x 12" card stock pack called "Butterfly Wings."
  • The green mat measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and is by Bazzill.
  • The candy hearts paper measures 5 1/2" wide by 1" tall.  It is from a Valentine's paper pack I picked up at Target in their $1 spot.
  • The purple is from my scrap stash and measures 5 1/2" wide by 1/2" tall.
  • The ribbon is 5/8" wide and is a sheer pink with white polka dots that I purchased at Michaels.
  • The rhinestones are by Recollections and are also from Michaels.
  • The scalloped circle was cut using the Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge.  It measures 4 1/2" and is from the Recollections "Butterfly Wings" paper pack.
  • The pink mat is from the same paper pack and measures 3 1/2".  It was cut using the Cricut George & Basic Shapes cartridge.
  • The sweet little owl is a digi stamp from  The file is called Owl Always Love U and is available colored and uncolored.
  • The three little hearts were punched out -- they measure 1/2" tall.
  • I used a white Gelly Roll pen to add my dotty-detail to the scalloped circle.
I hope you'll head on over to and check out the wonderful projects the rest of the Design Team created.  Don't forget -- you can link up your "Hearts for You" project for a chance at being named this week's "Top Crafty Cutter."  The Top Cutter gets "bragging rights" and a gift certificate from
